a student of Kurt Rosenwinkel,
the world's greatest up-and-coming jazz guitarist,
at his guitar jazz school in Switzerland and was
searching for a guitar just like the master. You
will see this guitar featured on Walters website.
(see Jazzy Stuff)
The NYSS-3 is Kurt's guitar of choice and this is
what he says about it:
"Iíve always kept an arsenal
of guitars, and have always looked for very specific things
from each - the response and character of each note, the
clarity of each note within a chord, sustain, frequency
range, playability. Iíve often found myself compromising,
sacrificing one quality for another.
that I have the NYSS-3, I feel that Iíve found the single
guitar Iíve been seeking for more than 15 years. It
produces a warm, fat tone, with a lot of front endóthe kind
of tone I need to carry a band and push the music in
different directions without the sound getting in the way.
With every note I can feel the whole instrument resonate
under my fingers.
Iím absorbed in playing, I donít want to be distracted by
the guitar, and with the DíAngelico, I can trust the
workmanship, I can trust it to always stay in tune and
always give me the sound I need."
